Re: Jim Moran: Does Billboard have a list of the top folk songs of the 1950s and 60s?
The information on the top selling songs on each year's Billboard pop singles chart is there [link for 1956 below]. But, as far as I know, Billboard never had a separate chart for folk singles. If correct, folk songs would have to be identified for each individual year. Ranking them by sales would then be even more tedious. And there could be differing opinions on categorizing a particular song as folk. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billboard_year-end_top_50_singles_of_1956
I saw this list.....
It's pretty comprehensive.
But, it's just someone's opinion.
Billboard's lists are based on record sales.
This list doesn't have this one..
